It's a live linux disk that contains everything you need to get digital
modes up and running. It's designed for EmComm use, but it's really
convenient for everyday use. It boots live from the CD and doesn't touch
the hard drive on the machine, and can save all the user configuration
to a memory stick (this is how I use it). Thus, you can try it out
without affecting the Win98 that's installed on the machine.
I used EMCpup during JOTA, and it worked great.
- The Rigblaster unit came with a CD full of software when I bought mine. Put on Digipan for PSK31.73 de Daledoes anyone have any other suggestions for software to try?
